Certainly not all gold watches are dress watches. Just take this GMT from Tudor, Rolex’s sister company, for example: robust, highly water resistant, and supremely useful, it’s perfect for travelers who crave a bit of class out of their tool watches.
Hardy as a tank, available in multiple configurations, and undoubtedly attractive, it’s a watch that signals that one “has arrived.” We recommend the 36mm model on a Jubilee bracelet; after all, if you’re gonna spring for a classic, you may as well take it to its logical extreme.
Made of 18K rose gold and outfitted with a hand-wound manufacture movement, the Tank Louis Cartier is an exercise in pure class and restraint. And though it may cost a pretty penny, it’s the type of watch that your great-grandkid could — and should — inherit someday.
GS’s SBGK platform is one of the most unique watches on the market: hand-wound, fitted to an egg-shaped case and finished with a unique dial configuration, it’s simply an awesome, left-of-center choice for someone who likes his or her watches to be a bit different.
